The Better Business Bureau (BBB) in the US has launched a handy Scam Tracker that makes it easy for US residents to stay informed about scams that may be occurring in their area. The tracker allows you to click on your state via an interactive map and review a list of common scams. You can then click on items within the list to read more information about a particular scam.
Alternatively, you can access scam information by using various search parameters such as the name and type of scam, the state, the amount of dollars lost, and the reporting data rang.
You can also report scams via the same interface.
This is a very handy tool and a great site for US residents to bookmark.
